The Power of Color in Fashion and how to make it work for you

_e5h9054 You can’t help it. When a woman in a red dress walks into a room, or a man in a striking black suit wearing a vibrant red tie, you turn and look. Or how about how relaxed you feel in a green room? Color is all around us and has more influence over our moods that you might think. When it comes to fashion, color is a powerful way to send non-verbal messages about your confidence and ability.

But could you be wrong? Truth is, guys, many women in their 30s are in their prime. Are you giving them the sex they want? Details Magazine takes the conversation there.

From Belisi: How to dress like a celebrity

From Sean Combs to style guru Jay Manuel, stars are hitting the red carpet with a surprising accessory—the pocket square. Once very popular among Hollywood’s elite, the pocket square disappeared for the most part. The good news is that this elegant trend has returned. Another way male stars stand out at award shows and other public events is with a sharp looking suit and a luxury silk scarf. At Belisi, we understand that a quality tie is the denouement of a well-put together star look.

Belisi calls Ties the versatile men's accessory

Palmbeach_3Who doesn't love getting the most out of their investments? Two-fers, double-downs, whatever you want to call them, we all like getting a little something for nothing. Men's ties, while they seem to only have one look for one purpose, the truth is, neckties are a versatile accessory. You can wear them to the typical places: work, the opera, church but you can also wear a loosened tie for an afternoon event or Sunday brunch--on a warm summer night to a dinner date. Wider knots, tighter knots or loose around the collar, ties add character and personalized style to suits and casual button-downs, plus you can wear them with or without the accompaniment of a blazer or pocket square.

How to fold a pocket square by Belisi

If you haven’t heard, men's pocket squares are all the rage. Think Fred Astaire meets the 21st century (without the top hat). Sounds cool, right?

Who needs another necktie? Belisi says maybe Dad

Okay, so Father’s Day is right around the corner. Wondering what to get Dad? Neckties get a lot of flack for being the “stand-by” gift for guys. Sure, when you’re talking about discount store ties purchased at the last minute, it’s understandable that ties get a bad rap.

But the truth is, ties are still a current and useful (even romantic) gift. Aside from being easy to purchase, ties are a popular gift to give and receive because they pull together an ensemble like no other accessory. A tie can be the centerpiece of an entire outfit (with the right tie of course). When a father wears a tie given to him by his children or wife, he carries a piece of his loved ones with them
wherever his career takes him.

The rise of the tee

T-shirts have always been a part of American men’s fashion but the industry has come a long way from Fruit of the Loom. Tees, like jeans, are acceptable garments in many social situations. They’re versatile too. Throw on a tee with your favorite jeans or pair with a fitted blazer and you go from stuffy conservative to urban professional. Maybe it’s the new price tags or just a shift in public perception (if we have to work, we should at least be comfortable right?). In the past, a pressed shirt and crisp suit meant you were polished and put together—now it screams “slave to the Man.”

Previews of men’s fall fashion covered the gamut, from sleek and polished to reworked traditional and preppy to vampy and 70-80s inspired. While the direction seems scattered, one trend is consistent: men’s fashion is taking a decidedly retroactive/futuristic and more feminine direction, with sleeker, narrow lines, geometric patterns and bold colors and prints.
